The fifth CDEN/RCCI International Design Engineering Conference will encourage a vigorous discussion on the teaching and practice of design engineering to cross the innovation gap - the gap between research and the design and creation of products, processes and procedures that help the people of Canada and the world. Submissions can include, but are not limited to, the philosophy of design; tools and techniques for effective and successful design; methods and tools for designing to meet needs; methods for and research into the assessment of design; teaching and promoting design; humanitarian design; design successes and failures; tear-downs of designs and design-processes; the infrastructure required for design; lessons and methods used in non-engineering design fields; design for commercialization; etc. The goal of the conference is to explore design practice and teaching that leads to better lives for Canadians.
